Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Finally, amid all the hoopla and encroaching hysteria, here is the book that anyone interested in the true meaning of the millennium simply must read. A widely recognized New Testament scholar, writing on the biggest story of our time, provides the first work that: <BR>-- Gives a clear explanation of how the turn of the millennium has been misunderstood and miscalculated.<BR>-- Shows why the widespread "apocalyptic take" on the millennium is in error.<BR>-- Exposes what drives millennium fever in the first place.<BR>-- Offers a provocative way for us to celebrate the millennium authentically and with integrity.<P>In this timeliest of books Dr. N. T. Wright argues that getting ready for the millennium does not mean getting ready for the end of the world as we know it. Instead, he points out that celebrating the new millennium means challenging our prevailing cultural story and symbols — in the very same way as the calendar we follow was designed to do in its day. Wright shows that the millennium hype is masking a deeper problem in our culture — questions concerning what he calls "postmodernity" — and then, by following some ancient words on hope, outlines a practical way forward for creating a better world.
